The Photoshop installer installs Adobe Gamma control panel (Adobe Gamma.cpl) into the Windows/System folder (Windows Me and 98) or the Program Files/Common Files/Adobe/Calibration (Windows XP and 2000), and it installs the Adobe Gamma loader application (Adobe Gamma Loader.exe) into the Program Files/Common Files/Adobe/Calibration folder. In addition, it installs a shortcut to the Adobe Gamma Loader application in the Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Startup folder (Windows Me and 98) or the Documents and Settings/All Users/Start Menu/Programs/Setup (Windows XP and 2000). As a result, the Adobe Gamma loader application appears in the Start > Programs > Startup menu and starts automatically during Windows startup.
While loading Adobe Gamma.cpl during Windows startup, the Adobe Gamma Loader application applies settings in the Adobe Gamma.cpl file to the system and applies calibration settings you saved for your monitor at the system level.http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/321608.html
To prevent Adobe Gamma from loading its settings at startup , remove Adobe Gamma Loader:
-- Windows XP and 2000:
1. Double-click My Computer.
2. Navigate to Documents and Settings/All Users/Start Menu/Programs/Startup.
3. Select Adobe Gamma Loader, and drag it onto the desktop. http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/321608.html
